Great, but Senn 421's better
They should really have the Sennheiser 421 source up here. I was just comparing the high quality stream to the Senn source on my HD, and while this sounds great, the Senn source just jumps right out at you and sounds as live as it gets. Maybe a tad less Phil, but only a tad. Otherwise, Jerry's guitar cuts through your eardrums and Brent just stands out, he's the undisputed star on Minglewood. One of the best ever, IMHO. :-) 4 1/2 stars for being a whisker behind the Senn.

Track 8 is Don't Ease Me In, not Tennesse Jed

1/2 a mile from Tucson
This beyer recording possesses outstanding fidelity and stands the test of time with the advent of digital recordings starting with Compton Terrace in early '83. This aud brings to life songs that are otherwise muddled by the soundboard (i.e. Jack Straw). Listening to it now I can really appreciate Bobby's angular playing and Brents filligries flying all around Garcia's spidery leads.
Of coarse the second set hits stride with an awesome pairing of Mated>Eyes....also note the Brokedown has an early solo from Jerry (in between 2nd/3rd versus). The third set is pure gravy after a criminally short post-drums. Not bad for the cardiac kids of '83....
